Beautiful place to sit, relax or take a leisurely stroll. Very impressive variety of plants. Well worth a visit.

A great place to relax. It's also free and near the bus stop and the subway. Its a huge park with lots of benches. The bathrooms were not very clean, no paper towels or soap.

A lot of different and beautiful trees but some of them need water!!!. However it is very pleasant to walk in this garden .

Beautiful botanical garden, very clean and tidy. The park has a variety of plants from around the world, including carnivorous ones (there are five winter gardens). There are also several sculptures and art around the park. It's a lovely place to visit with kids or to have a time off.

Beautiful display of vegetation from different continents. I was disappointed because the butterfly display was closed. Although the rest room is very small and basic I still recommend to visit this place.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful oasis of tranquillity and beautiful colour in the midst of busy Buenos Aires. The summer and autumn weekends there were various activities going on always. We enjoyed a botanical treasure hunt with my daughters one weekend, another day (mid week) we stumbled on two musicians practicing their saxophone and harmonica playing in the midst of the leaves turning for autumn. The place is magical!

The gardens are a decent size, not too big to wonder around in a reasonable length of time. Sadly this is not the best botanical gardens we've seen by any means, it's nice and pleasant but overall we were quite disappointed. There are some nice areas of the grounds but the vast majority is just green plants, trees or scrubs. It may be due to the time of year we visited but there was very little colour around with the exception of a few small sections. It's surrounded closely by roads so no matter where you sit there is noise from the activity of those streets. I did like this place but it's nothing special unfortunately, nice enough for a visit and wonder around for an hour or so. If you bring a picnic make sure to stay off the grass and to the benches and paths. Enjoy!

The best season to visit is in the spring, but it's well worth visiting it in any season. The different gardens are well documented and the place offers w calm stroll amidst the hustle and bustle of downtown.

Really nice place to sit down, relax and have a drink or tea, or coffee -im not a lover of Mate, but I must say the atmosphere in this place is ideal for the activity. If you like me prefer coffee or tea, bring either of these beverages in a container, a few nibbles, and enjoy a few hours in this botanic garden.

I fell in a fountain and people laughed at me. Even when I told people that I was cold they still laughed at me. It's a nice place, but don't trust the fountains
